Billy Bob Cancels Canadian Tour

Billy Bob Thornton’s Joaqun Phoenix-like trainwreck of an interview has taken on a life of its own: The star’s band, The Boxmasters, has canceled the rest of its Canadian tour. Of course, the Sling Blade actor says a flu outbreak prompted the move, but some may be wondering whether his calling his Canadian fans “mashed potatoes but no gravy” had anything to do with it. The news comes a day after the band was booed onstage in Toronto. Good news for their fans, though: They’re back on the road April 14, opening for Willie Nelson in Connecticut.
